Monday - tracking foods [Oct. 30th, 2006|05:46 pm]
Tracking daily Nutrition, Goals, Vitamins, Dietary

BF: coffee w/milk (~70 Cal)
8 oz of water

SNACK: 8 oz of water

LUNCH:(half-sized order of) Stirfry Veggies Pesto: Artichokes, Tomatoes, Mushrooms, Chicken & Onions in a Walnut Pesto sauce (sans pasta) - with Parmesan cheese sprinkled on top (300 calories?)
coffee w/a splash of milk & 1 creamer (35 cal)
8 oz of water

------------Midday subtotal: 405 Calories -----------------

oddly, I had no appetite at dinner, but I ate with the kids anyway; I probably shouldn't have since I wasn't hungry (shrug?) I had:
1 turkey hotdog (100)
in a crescent roll (50)
some cheese (100)
in a crescent roll (50)
& 3 dark chocolate jackolantern cookies wo/the creamy filling (100)
& blue corn chips with hummus (100)

the calories are an estimate, & put me at 500 calories for dinner, which feels like about right.

& I had a small scotch (100)
Daily Total : 1050
week "weak" spot pre planning:
Halloween trickortreating is tomorrow! Prob. some kinda warm drink for the girls after trick or treating (hot cider w/cinnamon & hot cocoa are both avail. at home) the warm sweet drinks will be more tempting then the candy; but the chocolate will be hard to say no to, I expect.

the 11th; going to St. Cloud to visit cousin & family, so likely to have too much food around (& chocolate) then too.

Then thanksgiving, Athena's birthday party, my bday & then Christmas. I'll have to be strong to eat well this time of year! LOL.

weigh in & excercise ideas [Oct. 30th, 2006|04:45 pm]
Tracking daily Nutrition, Goals, Vitamins, Dietary

[Tags|, ]

I took a few days off tracking; I was pretty goog & avoided most the sweets that are everywhere this time of year; I had a couple brownies after the rollerskating event though & I also tried 1 of the jackolantern cookies (leftovers) ~

I did a weigh in & I'm down 5 lbs from 2 weeks ago when I started tracking. I would love to say it brings me to a new low: but it's sad but true that I had gotten down to 160 in July & had slowly gone back up to 170 by mid-October. So now I'm back at 165; and the good news is it seems everytime I checked over the last week I was steadily going down, and not up at all, so that's a relief: especially as I have neither exercised nor eating particularly little; counting somewhere between 1500 to 1800 calories a day is hardly a "diet" to lose wieght; it's pretty much a "standard/keep your weight steady" intake amount for my size To get to a "healthy BMI range" I only need to hit 133 lbs, according to most BMI calculators (133-135 range on this) so I am going to change my "weight ticker" goal from 125 lbs up to 133 lbs, as it is more realitic, and I think will be more encouraging for me to work towards. I can always make a new goal later if I'm not happy at 133 (ish) right?! *smile* I should hope so, at least.

- so that means I can really make a lot of progress if I figure out where in my schedule I can fit in a workout *sigh* It sure would help to have something regular (like a workout class - there is a Karate school a block from our house & Aurora is interested, I wonder if they have any "parent & kid" classes? But, Athena definately is not ready for that structured workout : HEH. I think 4 is when my little brother started & really loved it. 3 is about the smallest I've seen kids in martial arts classes & they do seem to love it, but they have to be at that "talking clearly" & "willing to stand still/follow directions" age. Although: Athena does do weekly stretch & grow at her preschool & I always get notes about how much she loves that. =)

But if I also had some routine I could do after the kids were in bed, that would be the best! I have, a yoga ball, pilates ropes, a couple jump ropes, some 5 lbs weights & a Yoga mat, so I figure I can do something during this after bed time (if I'm motivated)

------so back to tracking!-----------

Winds-day a la Pooh ~ or 'Weddingday' as we called it in preschool: hah. [Oct. 25th, 2006|12:07 pm]
Tracking daily Nutrition, Goals, Vitamins, Dietary

BF: 2 small servings of Quiche @ Panera & a strawberry danish & a homemade latte w/half the milk
(um... we'll guess 300,300, 250 & 70 = 920 . ow. heh)

SNACK: coffee w/milk (25)
LUNCH: soup & more coffee. (125) Oops: missed lunch.
-------------------945 Calories midday - ow heh ------------------------

I may have a coffee problem, houston? Houston? .. ah well, at least I have a lot of coffee out here. heh heh.

AFTERNOON: green/mint-tea mixture (yes both caffinated)... & a triple berry muffin (from Panera too)(150)

--------------1095 Cals Hrm.& it's all downhill from here-------------

hooo yeah, downhill fer sure.

Mcdonalds w/the kids: busy night w/pumpkin carving, homework & Lost & a bedtime goal of 7 to 7:30 to hit -whew-
I had grilled chicken salad w/no dressing (250) & the kids left over fries (250) & a sip of applejuice (30?)
Dinner: 530 est.

Will be having prob. 2 beers later, so I'll just ad that now: 200

Daily Calories total: 1825 I think...

Yeah, no wonder I'm not loosing weight & not gaining weight - maybe going down 5-10 lbs to slowly gain it back?? I'm eating all the calories I need, a few less some days, but in general, I'm eating what I need // so : No loss.

*sigh* I hate being/feeling hungry though - or, really: I don't hate the feeling: I hate the fear of starving. Which is truly inane: yes, especially as I am overweight: but, nonetheless, I have a fear of starving to death: lol. I better figure out how to reassure myself that I won't starve: other then eating.

ok; that's it for today's diet journal. Maybe tomorrow will be better! Lol (I shouldn't have allowed myself to skip lunch: or get a big breakfast: tsk tsk).
